Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called.- The Medicine of Hope (via pureblyss)

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,-
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17, NKJV (via pureblyss)
The daily routine of most adults is so heavy and artificial that we are closed off to much of the world. We have to do this in order to get our work done. I think one purpose of art is to get us out of those routines. When we hear music or poetry or stories, the world opens up again.- Ursula LeGuin (via nathanielstuart)
